virus(es), darwin, and the phone call that changed everything

I am so sorry that I haven't been commenting the past couple of days. Due to an, uh, inappropriate virus on my computer at work, I've been unable to access Blogger for most of the day. I have no idea how I got such a virus on my computer. I promise I'll catch up on my reading and commenting this afternoon and weekend. Speaking of viruses, most of my evenings this week were spent drugged and on the couch (also why I am behind on blog reading). I'm feeling a lot better today than I have been all week. I finally got my prescriptions filled, so I hope that this thing clears up soon.

Reading the comments on my previous post has kept me busy, too. If you haven't checked them out yet, please do. I read each one of them as they came into my e-mail inbox and found myself wondering if I should send the link to the people who write those Darwin Award books. Perhaps they can do a "fertile people" version? Really, it's a train wreck. I didn't want to read anymore, but I couldn't help it. Some of you really deserve medals of honor for not killing these idiots. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with all of these quotes just yet. I think I'm still in shock over the word vomit people let escape from their mouths.

Before I go and get caught up on everyone's blogs and lives, I have an update of my own. Last night, Joey and I got a phone call from the foster mom at the dog rescue. After careful consideration, she decided to offer us the sister of the brother and sister pair and wanted to know if we would be agreeable to this situation. We talked it over and decided to tell her, "Yes!" So on Sunday, we will officially become a family of three when we bring home 18-month old Danica, a brindle miniature doxie. I will upload pictures as soon as we get her home on Sunday evening.

Thank you to everyone who supported us while we waited out the agency's decision. We need this puppy just as much as she needs us.

You know, Katie, if you'd stop watching porn at work on your computer, you wouldn't get those viruses!! Silly! :)

Congratulations on getting your pooch! I can't wait to see pictures of Dani.

Why is splitting up the pair?!?! I'm so happy you're getting the little girl, I just don't understand her reasoning on dividing them up! Congratulations on your new addition - please be sure to post pics when you can - I can't wait to see her. It makes my heart smile that you're adopting a doxie. It really, really does.

I hope you feel better soon. I've missed you around the blogospehere the past few days!

Yayyyyy! I am so happy you are getting the pooch. I have 4 (yes 4 which is what happens when 2 dog lovers merge) and they are the best. In my darkest of moments they find a way to make me smile and laugh.

Yay for the puppy!! I say that a family is NEVER complete without a doggie!

I can't believe she's splitting up the pair! We have two brothers and they would be LOST without each other!!!!

But congrats on getting one of them....but don't be surprised if she calls to offer the other one later because of how he's reacting to being split up!
